Need help choosing cheap PSU like EVGA 500B or Corsair CXM, please help :)

Hi all, I'm outside the US so my options are kind of limited... and expensive. The 430w EVGA I'm considering is $30 msrp in the US and $70 over here :(

Basically, I need an emergency PSU because the one I had, a Seasonic, has to go back and hopefully I'll get a new one because of the warranty, but I need a computer for school so a replacement PSU is needed for now.

I have a 6600k but no GPU and will not be adding a GPU for now, so i'm looking for a 400 to 500 watt psu. Then when I get the seasonic i'll replace it.

So here's the ones i have access to and need an opinion on

EVGA 430 W1 80plus

EVGA 500b 80 bronze

Corsair 450vs

Corsair 430 cxm

Here are some reviews.

  1. Look for a Corsair CX450M.

  2. I would go with the 500B or the CX430M if those are your choices.

    Ditto, if you're limited to those the CX430M is probably the best choice.
    Honestly if I were you i'd go for whatever was cheapest between the CXM and B1.

  4. Thanks so much guys, you've helped a lot :) So I'm going to discard the VS and the plain 80+ evga since the cxm and b1 are better. I noticed that the vs was in a lower tier than cxm on the psu lists.

  5. Would a Seasonic SS400es be better or worse than the CXM or Evga b1? just saw one on sale too.

  6. Better, but it depends on pricing.
    Which of the three is cheapest?
    This is only a temp replacement for a low wattage system, so it should be fine with either.
